Pentecost: Telling the Truth
The Holy Spirit arrived in Jerusalem and breathed new life into a new type of community, one in which all races, genders, ethnicities, and languages are equal. Each were given gifts to speak and understand one another. One year ago, voices of strangers stood up as George Floyd breathed his last. This is discipleship: telling the truth and standing up to injustice. Winds of change remind us that the Holy Spirit continues to work to change the world.
